At last, the rest of the story that began in Love Unscripted.
There is no rehearsal for true love.
When A-list movie star Ryan Christensen ducked into her pub to escape his screaming fans, never in a million years did Taryn Mitchell think her life was about to change forever. But now, eight months later, after a whirlwind romance, Taryn wakes up in Ryan’s Hollywood hotel room to find a diamond to die for on her left ring finger - and her face splashed across the cover of every gossip magazine.
Ryan’s very public proposal is catnip to the tabloids, his management team is worried, and Taryn must figure out how a small town girl like her fits into his glittering world. What does it take to make a relationship work amidst telephoto lenses, daily on-set temptations, and jealous fans who will stop at nothing to keep you from walking down the aisle with the man of your dreams?
With no script to follow and no chance for a dress rehearsal, Taryn and Ryan will be forced to take the plunge into real life and risk everything to make their love last.

it's the best way to spend a working day, and i'm thankful my job is one where i can listen to books all day long.
i read this book the old fashioned way before it ever had a life in audio, and it was a great read! i thoroughly enjoyed the audio version more and the narration is terrific! it's a wonderful wrap-up to the first book. it feels complete, all major loose ends tied nicely.
some of the other reviews are unfavorable and i just wanted to say that this book is sweet and lovely. a chick flick if you will.
if you saw the movie knotting hill with julia roberts you'll enjoy this book even more.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Book 1 was a romance lover's dream book with such an epic tender and touching love affair between Ryan and Taryn and in this one you also have Mike and Marie's romance too - then what's not to love in book 2 you ask? Well, I thought it just wasn't quite as dramatic or romantic as the 1st brilliant book and it's not what it says in this second story but what it leaves out that's the problem.
Certain things seemed to be skimmed over, just touched on or seemed very rushed like the wedding, the house and, without giving away the ending, everything else after that. It could have gone into much more detail about each of these things which would have given the listener a fuller picture and hence a more pleasurable listening experience.
Worth a credit? In my humble opinion it was, unfortunately, a little bit disappointing but still very worthy of a credit so it's a YES.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This is what I am talking about! When u do a second book... this is how u do it!!! YES!!! Great! Picks up right where the first book left off. Tarren, however has faith in her relationship and her man!!! LOVE IT!!! We all know I loved the first book, and I loved this one too.
I absolutely love how realistic these books are. In this book, we see how Tarren's friends are having girl fights, back stabbing , divorce and all kinds of stuff...sooo reall!!! But what really got me was Ryan! Wow...did his character come out of his shell!!! OMG!!! He was already such a well defined character fromt the first book, and then in this one he just blossomed even more.. Sooo emotional. I must have listen to this like 6 times already. Sooo good. Plus we see old enemies again, because Ryan is of course a movie star! So good.
Maby never disappoints!
Warning to my Family " do not talk to me while I have my IPod on" that was what I said to them . Tina this is an awesome story. You made me smile and I think I will have this twinkle in my eye for weeks to come. I only finished the book an hour ago and I already miss them, to me they feel like my friends. Brilliant Thank You
Good follow-up to "Love Unscripted" that continues the story of Taryn and Ryan. The narrator is excellent and the story unfolds as expected. My only problem with this book is that the final chapters seem very rushed. Most of the story is told in detail and it disappointingly finishes too quickly. It felt as though the author had a deadline to meet and was racing to completion. It is still well worth a credit.
Say something about yourself!
Sometimes you read a series that just makes you appreciate the world more, this is one of those series. From book one you get to listen to these two people from different worlds fall in love, and in book 2 you get to see their love grow into a real relationship. By the end of book two I was left with a feeling that I overcame all the odds they did to get to my HEA, and I guess that's what a good story is suppose to do for a reader.
I don't want to give much away, so I will say that this book doesn't drain you...it doesn't pick you up to knock you down, it wasn't implausible or saccharine sweet it was like watching a movie and at the end you just want to take a deep breath, smile, let it out and say...AWWWWWWW! That is how you should feel after reading a romance book! It wasn't hot or steamy but it wasn't devoid of major sexual tension and innuendo, I hate to be all Goldilocks here but it was ...just....right!
Well done Mrs. Reber, your efforts are appreciated! To my fellow readers, I know they are two long books but I have to say it was worth the ride!
I have audio and kindle version and I like them both equally!
Everything that included Ryan!
All of it!
Yes I could listen in one sitting
As much as I loved the first book I initially wondered if the second book could live up to the first. It exceeded my expectations. Once again Ms. Reber writes so well that you can't put it down because you want to find out what happens next. The narrator is perfect and I will look for her work again. I can't wait until the next book comes out!!
I got through it...Love Unscripted was not a book I could rave about.
For me this author is just a little long in the telling of the story. The narrations was very good. I love a big story well written. I want to like these books. It was ok and evidently alot of people really enjoyed it.
Like a good romance book. I also like any good writing whether it is fiction, classic, etc,
The engagement went "viro" which upset Ryan Chistiansen's publishiist, Marla, and Agent, David, who summoned Ryan back to Los Angeles for a meeting. Marla & David were not very please that Ryan insist that Taryn Mitchell, his fiancé, sit in during the meeting.
Marla was disgusted and wanted to get a "handle on the problem" of the engagement and put it out it was just a stunt. Taryn talked to Marla's assistant, wanted to know if Marla put out a press release about their engagement and work on the fact it was "so romantic".
In this book, Taryn becomes much more involved in Ryan's life. She has impressed movie directors and producers. Taryn is honest , kind and is not afraid to express the truth. Problem with this is Ryan's eyes are opened to see who is positively working towards his goals as an actor or who is a leech.
Tina Reber reminds us we are all human whether we are in front of the camera or behind it. The word "fan" comes from the word "fanatic". We should remember that next time some one purchases a fan magazine. Try to remember who's life was disturbed in order to get the one photo.
Really loved this story, it kept a good paces throughout and I'm really looking forward to the next one when it's released. Always sad when a good book finishes.
"Beautiful story!! Definitely worth the money"
The journey with the characters, was so emotional. I find myself laughing, smiling or crying. I only wish there was book 3
I enjoy the atmosphere in the Pub and when Ryan sang and ask Tarin to marry him. Loved it.
All of it
When Tarin thought that Ryan had cheated on her
